  • The most enjoyable book I had was "Don Quixote de la Mancha." But I lost my copy. I read both the first part and the second part. It is great comedy. Saavedra is was genius. http://www.spanisharts.com/books/literature/literature.htm - - - - - -[Here is an excerpt from the website for you.] - - - - - - Hispania is the name that the Romans gave to the Iberian Peninsula. Latin iberic peninsular book, translated in the middle ages. This was converted into a Roman province at the end of the 3rd century BC. From Hispania, the word español was derived, which has been in existence since the beginning of Spanish literature in the Castilian language. But not all Spanish literature is written in the Castilian language. When Hispania first existed, books were written in Latin, as the peninsula was dependent on Rome. Thus, this is a Spanish book. This last book was copied, probably by Spanish Visigoths, barbaric Germans who settled in Hispania during the 5th century, and who were to continue writing literature in the Latin language. ,
  • Its a book in Tamil language... its about the life testimony of an Evangelist.
  • I've got a few books I keep returning to: 1) The Oxford Book of Nursery Rhymes - a fantastic academic book with lots of info and history and variants. 2) Godel Escher Bach - a strange Pulitzer Prize winning book about maths, science, art, music, consciousness, etc. etc. 3) Life A User's Manual by George Perec - one of the most entertaining novels I know - I just pick it up and randomly read a chapter. 4) Collected Poems of George Mackay Brown - beautiful langauge. There are lots more, but I'll leave it at four.
  • If I had to pick just one; it would probably be "The Jack Tales."
  • "Magnificent Trees of the World". The book shows famous ancient trees from different places in the world, and the historical significance of them in relation to man. It is truly awe-inspiring to read about such magnificent living wonders of the world.

  • "The Joy of Sex" -- it's even got "joy" right in the name!
